season's final stages

Two more days of significant games remain for the Southern Connecticut Conference' regular season.
Tonight, Wilbur Cross can lock up the top seed with a win at Sheehan. Hillhouse, Notre Dame-West Haven and Lyman Hall are all tied for second at the moment. Branford and Xavier are tied for fifth while Career has a two-game lead on several teams in seventh place.
Tonight's Xavier-Hillhouse game in New Haven will have a big imact on the league standings as will others.
Sixteen teams are still alive for berths in the newly-expanded SCC playoffs. Amity, West Haven, Foran, Guilford and East Haven all need either one or two wins to qualify. Check back on Tuesday for an update. The tournament begins next Thursday at the site of the higher seed.
In the Shoreline, your top three seeds, in no particular order, are Hyde, Cromwell and Old Saybrook. The rest of the field has its work cut out to reach the finals, let alone win the conference crown. That tournament begins Feb. 23.
Kolbe Cathedral has a two-game lead on the South-West Conference field and should be the top seed. So will Crosby in the NVL, if it beats Torrington tonight at the Palace.
St. Joseph looks to be the top seed in the FCIAC. More interesting in that conference is the continued absence of one of the state's all-time winningest coaches. Harding's Charlie Bentley has missed 11 games as the police and internal investigation into him allegedly slapping a female student while at the high school. He is on paid leave from his job as dean of students and as the boys' basketball coach.
